    Thanks Puck Chaser, I had my mess kit at Andrei the tailors and they couldn't locate any buttons at any of the kit shops so I will wait out. Its frustrating they closed the kit shop at Borden.

    Logistics DEU buttons, collar dogs, shoulder titles

    I cannot seem to locate anywhere that has Log DEU buttons or collar dogs. The shoulder titles I have snap in half when I try to push them through the shoulder straps of my tunic. Due to their scarcity, is there a plan afoot to change these items amidst the greater change of rank, Corps, etc? I...

    Weapon allowed on plane

    How about the top notch airport security protecting us and our loves ones being paid by the lowest bidder at minimum wage? Organized crime gets things onto planes all the time...human security is still only human and things are going to slip past. My father in law was a commercial airline...

    The Rocket Scientists Amongst Us.

    I have seen prisoners do remarkable things to avoid a breath test, sucking a penny is one, somewhere, somehow, someone got it into their head that copper in the mouth will negate a breath test. Same as vigorous exercise. Seeing a drunk madly doing pushups in the cell prior to his test is...

    Crye Precision

    I spoke to them over the phone earlier this month. They will not ship to foreign addresses and that includes Canada. Best thing to do is have a buddy in the US order the item on his credit card. That is if the kit is in stock! Brian Luscombe

    OPP Regular/Auxiliary Ranks

    Sorry for my tardy reply, just got back from Mississippi! Medtech, Aux OPP officers are not issued any sidearm but are allowed to draw a long gun when on patrol. Thats not to say they walk around with one, but can grab it if they need to from the trunk etc. Cheers, Brian Luscombe
